Kennedy Mweene walked away with R100 000 as Player of the Year last night when Free State Stars presented awards to their players for a job well done in the just ended season.
According to general manager Ransi Mokoena all the players were winners but not all could be rewarded. The Top Goal Scorer prize was scooped by Sthembiso Ngcobo who took home R65 000. The other awards were most disciplined player which was won by Siyabonga Mdluli and the most consistent player James Matola who both pocketed R25 000. The duo of Thamane Motaung and Tabelo Mafokeng were named Rookies of the Year and both took home R20 000. Mokoena said they were happy to finally reward their players. “It is the players who took us to where we were at the end of the season. We had to thank them and that is why we took the decision to do this just before the start of the season. Everyone in the team is a winner and we appreciate all that they have done for the team,” he told KickOff.com. Mweene was also named the Goalkeeper of the Year by PSL at their awards ceremony in May and picked a R50 000 prize from the League for his efforts.
